Mark Molchan is an artist who has become known for the vibrant character of his works. He creates images that speak to people in a meaningful way, and his latest creation, a set of ten magical snowman greeting cards, is sure to excite new and old fans alike. Every card in the set portrays the relationship between a snowman and his tiny friend, communicating humor and wonder. If you want to laugh, smile, and feel touched, this set is right for you.

The set of ten cards comes packaged in a covered box intended to keep your cards safe and protected. To start out, the cards will be available on Kickstarter exclusively. Hard illustrated, custom printed, and with matching envelopes, this is a set of A2 sized greeting cards that will spread joy and communicate your unique personality to the world.

Right now, we are turning to you, for help raising $1000. This start-up capital will cover the costs of printing, distributing, and then marketing Mark Molchan’s latest set of greeting cards. Your contributions make this creative project possible and also make it possible for Mark Molchan to continue working as an artist.

We appreciate your continued support.

Thank you, Mark & Jon

 Unfortunately, Kickstarter doesn't let you choose more than one backer level, and some of you have expressed the desire to be able to add a mug or collection to your order. In order to try and help you out with that wish - we are adding the ability to add-on product to your order.

So, if you want to add a collection or mug to your pledge, simply add the appropriate amount to your pledge and during the backer survey phase of the project, you will be able to confirm how your additional pledge funds should be spent.

Risks and challenges
